It's not a matter of offending me or not and it's all good saying that the admins are all volunteers,but I don't think you understand that lots of copyrighted material has been uploaded here. I've even helped weed out quite a bit when I first signed up,but more of it has popped up. I am calm and I didn't mean that post as an attack. I just care about the IA because it was my understanding that all of the films and TV shows here are in the public domain. I'd hate to see the IA get sued for copyright infringement as some others here have said and are afraid might happen.

I know. I did notice that a lot of copyrighted movies (mainly 70's movies with valid notices...) have been uploaded recently and moved, most without move requests. But yeah, hopefully the archive gets some of this stuff figured out. It was bad enough when it was only wrestling and anime that got uploaded. Now it's movies that are hard(er) to determine copyright status.
but yeah, here's hoping that they get some of these problems resolved.

They will that Marilyn Monroe film got removed. The person who uploaded it gave a link to another site where it came from. Some of the films on there were PD ones that are already here,but there were quite a few that were either not in the public domain or I seriously doubted were PD.
